My story is set in the 1860's. It is based on Frederick McCubbin's painting, The Homecoming.

It is the story of a young girl who marries an older man who goes away to the goldfields for two years and never writes. In the meantime she meets someone much younger and they have a child. The girl is frightened of how her husband will react when he returns. It turns out that he is a bigamist and her new sweetheart deals out a punishment which sets him packing. The sweetheart warns the man that he will see him in Court.
